Red Dog Designs does St. Patrick's Day!



xoxoJen's collage of St. Patrick's Day polishes


I had fun with the Red Dog Mardi Gras polishes and now I'm getting lucky with the St. Pat's trio! Gina has done a nice job of capturing the holiday with these three polishes, there's even a rainbow in every bottle!

Póg Mo Thóin!!! - Soft linear holo in a creamy sage color base.

I really love the shade of this polish its such a bright happy spring green! Perfect for St. Pat's or Easter and it has a golden shimmer in addition to soft holographic rainbow. I took a bottle shot outside in the sunlight to get a better capture on camera. It does show on the nail but because I shoot indoors, the lighting tends to soften it. I used three coats with topcoat for the swatch photos.

Shamrock Shake - Hex, square, and circle glitters, in finishes of holo, matte, and metallic, in various hues of green, and iridescent color change green-lime-gold glitters, including metallic green ‘shamrock’ glitters, sprinkled with micro holo glitter, in a clear base. (16 Different Glitters)

Jas and I both love this time of year when McDonald's offers their Shamrock Shakes so I grinned when I saw the name of this polish. I rolled the bottle in my hand and oooed and aaahhhed at all the green, gold, and rainbow holo glitter in there and then I spotted the clovers, so cute! I wore one coat over Póg Mo Thóin!!! I redipped the brush a few times to get two more clovers.

The accent nail features a water marble done in a clover shape with China Glaze Entourage and Jolly Holly topped with a holo topper from Vapid Lacquer. I learned how to do the water marble from watching the youtube tutorial from My Simple Little Pleasures. This was my second try and I'm pretty pleased with it as compared to the first time I tried it in 2011 following the other tutorial she made.

Blarney Stone - Various sized hex glitters, in shades of holo gold, holo green hues, holo black, and green, sprinkled with micro silver, green, and holo glitter, in a mossy green base. (10 Different Glitters) (THIS IS A TEXTURED POLISH)

Kissing the Blarney Stone is an old tradition said to endow the kisser with the gift of the gab. I've not kissed it myself, but I learned what it was because of this polish!
I wonder if rubbing this polish counts? I like the feel of textured polish and often rub it with my fingertips! Blarney Stone has a semi-rough texture compared to the rougher Zoya pixies you may be familiar with. I like Blarney Stone best because it doesn't seem to catch on things as much as the Zoya did, yet its still got a nice grit to it. The first three images are two coats alone and in the last three images I've added a topcoat.
